Technologie 5./6. Semester
Strasse des 17. Juni 118
Info: Fr 10-13 Uhr
JunProf. Dr. Berit Greinke
This seminar provides an introduction to topics in experimental Wearable Technology and Electronic Textiles.
The process of orientation will be supported by hands-on interventions, field trips and guest lectures, to investigate a range of material-based and interdisciplinary approaches.
The seminar will be held in English.
Students will work independently on a sketchbook and a written assignment (in German or English).
